 Dear Amerikkka,

            We were built from a country of immigrants, so why you separate us from skin tone?! Why is it when you pick actors for movies there’s never enough representation of colored people! When I say colored I mean Black, Mexican, Asian, anything but White. You call us Mexicanos a minority, but there’s more of us than there is you Amerikkka so shouldn’t that make us the majority?!! You racially profile us!! So, tell me if a Muslim shoots someone they’re coincidentally are labeled a terrorist on the news. However, Amerikkka when it’s a white man who does the shooting they all of a sudden have a mental health issue! An act of terrorism is an act of terrorism for it doesn’t have a color! For the only color we all have is red and that is blood. For there is no specific race only the human race!!

Hello Abraham. Looks like you have had over 100 views but no reviews on this. It's probably too controversial to most people. I hope you like honest and up front people because that's what you are getting from me. I do agree with much of what you say, but I think there's more to the picture. I hope you will consider my words. I'm proud of most things in this America. I served in the army during war. My grandfather served during the second world war. No country's history is perfect. Search them all. None is perfect, most could improve, including America. I'm proud of our many great immigrants that have helped us and became Americans. I differ from the mainstream society who calls one an African American, another a Mexican American and all of this. I like to think of us as all Americans. I don't like separating because of color like you say. Now when I say American I am referring to people in the USA. I'm aware that people in South America say the same. They are technically correct and I don't disagree.

As far as the actors and choices, I don't think we should purposely choose actors to create a balance just because the choices end up with one color being dominant. If there are statically more whites or any other color then other colors then it would be obvious there would be more. I think choices in anything should be based upon ability and performance. Color doesn't matter. Look at basketball and football teams. Many are dominated by black people. Should we get rid of them and choose more whites or others? Coaches make choices to win, based on ability. If you had a heart attack and needed heart surgery, would you purposely choose the one considered a minority or someone who is known to be the best surgeon? One of my best doctors was an Indian man. I think he came from India. I like him not because of his color but because of his ability alone.

I think terrorism is terrorism no matter the color.

I think we were purposely created race by race because our creator is a God of variety. We should be thankful and proud of our race or our mixture. There's no race superior to another. We are equal before God created by one blood as you noted.

Well I hope I didn't ruffle your fleathers too bad. Consider what I said. And remember, you have the potential to be whatever you want to be in this country. I welcome you.
